EAMON O'TOOLE: BIG BOYS TOYS
5 December 2014 - 8 March 2015

Eamon O'Toole's twin passions of art and sport are manifested in his remarkable, moulded plastic sculptures that depict iconic and heroic motor-sports engines, cars and assorted "big boys" paraphernalia. Life-sized and exciting, the sculptures in Big Boys Toys brim with humour and a sense of the surreal.

THE WORLD IS NOT A FOREIGN LAND: NEW PERSPECTIVES IN CONTEMPORARY INDIGENOUS PRACTICE
24 December 2014 - 8 February 2015

The world is not a Foreign Land brings together work by six extraordinarily gifted artists: Timothy Cook, Freda Warlapinni, Djambawa Marawili, Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Ngarra and Rusty Peters. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions-the Tiwi islands, the Kimberley and North-east Arnhem Land- each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
The world is not a Foreign Land is an Ian Potter Museum of Art and NETS Victoria touring exhibition, curated by Quentin Sprague. The development, presentation, promotion and tour of this project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
